Guys, I have some bad news. I just bought all of wave 1 aside from the Primes Masters and Leaders and that Grimlock is probably the worst figure. He is a great big piece of shit that wont stay tabbed in and with ugly ass gaps. The other two deluxe dinobots I have dont suffer much from the added combiner gimmick but Grimlock does, A LOT.

Man I wish local stores had displays and shelves like this. I suspect they most likely will be stuck with Titans Return leftovers for the next 3-4 months...

Speaking of Enigmas and Matrices: anybody find it odd that the Engimas are all different, yet the Matrix Cores are all the same sculpt?

Grimlock definitely does not do it for me with that alt mode....which is pretty key for him. I wasn't crazy about Slag, so I skipped on him, too -- but I love Slash & Swoop. I'm interested in Snarl, though! We'll see how PotP Snarl looks in-person before I decide.

Well that doesn't sound great. Anyone else have any at least decent experiences with him or should I just cancel my preorder?

They are also listed on the Irish Smyths site as well for €29 which makes them cheaper that the Titans Return Voyagers.

Hey nemesisorion, that was a mighty fine rant of yours, but it was a little over the top. You're more than welcome to vent your frustrations but do it within the rules of the forums.

Cheers.

The Matrix
The Enigma of Combination

Probably not. The first one only vaguely looks like a Matrix, I feel like Hasbro would have gone for something a little more on the nose and easily recognized as a Matrix. The second one I would think it was an Enigma it would have five points to represent the five members instead of six.

I'm probably wrong, but I'm going with the top being Primus and the bottom being Unicron. The first one reminds me of the circular formations on the surface of Cybertron while the second reminds me of Unicron's planet jaws as seen in G1 (not the clamping jaws from the Unicron Trilogy).

The images mirrored below are courtesy of regular news source Tf-factory on social media platform Weibo, and show a number of upcoming figures, or rather, their packaging, from Transformers Power of the Primes. Specifically, we have the bios and back of Voyagers Elita-1, Inferno and Hun Gurr, plus Deluxe Moonracer
and, in a surprising twist in the books, we have a new small teaser of a figure not previously known to make its appearance - character or mold - in the toyline: the back of packaging card for a Decepticon Blast Off, which looks suspiciously similar to the Takara Tomy version of the character in the Unite Warriors release for Bruticus (the Japanese version of Combiner Wars).

Take a look at all of them below, and let us know what you think of the surprising find amidst all the known upcoming waves of combiner figures, in this final chapter of the Prime Wars Trilogy toylines.

How come Blast Off is covered and has 4 languages and the others don't.

Since Blast Off mentions Bruticus, does this mean they'll reissue the Combaticons?

Blast Off definitely looks completely different from the other POTP packaging, which leads me to believe that it's fake

I ended up getting blast off online months ago but this weekend but this weekend while looking at him I thought power of the Primes would be a line they could release him. Maybe a slight toning of the chest to put the armor gimmick on and a new hand and he’d pass as a figure for it. Like I said while I do the takara one I don’t like his colors at all and if Hasbro releases him with the dark brown and purple I’ll get it.

The CW Combiners were all 6 members. Plus that is the symbol that is actually on the enigmas that come with the PotP Voyagers.

Yeah, there's no cross-sell or even a POTP logo on his.

To me it is either fake, or an indication that shuttle Blast Off is not going to be a regular release. May Mayhem or part of a box set perhaps? The multiple languages make me think it is for some type of special release where they can use the same packaging everywhere.

Hopefully Will just got a crappy pull from the QC lottery, but then again, grimlock is an entire thread worth of questionable design choices to begin with (why are the combiner ports on the outside of the feet when they could easily be hid on the inside of the feet and be invisible in dino mode? why was the chest molding split on the Y axis instead of the X axis? where is his crown? starscream gets one and hes not king, grimlock is king! why am I still going to buy this figure, despite all its flaws and already having the silver knight 2-pack grimlock, which frankly does fine as a g1 grimlock?)

Thinking Blast Off is a store exclusive. Packaging reminds me off Groove's, but I don't have a spare Groove to compare (and at work). Blast Off's inclusion in a post other figures we know about lends to the likelihood this is similar to previous exclusive released such as Groove and previous CW members.
